Juventus Soccer School Malta players go for trial with Calcio Padova

Three Juventus Soccer School Malta young players had a busy week as they had the opportunity to visit Padova for a trial with the youth sector of Italian side Calcio Padova.

Jamie Gauci, Neil Micallef and Ivan Vesejli from the Juventus Soccer School Malta, players of Lija/Iklin, Birkirkara and Luxol respectively, were selected for this trial by Calcio Padova Settore Giovanile technical director Giorgio Molon. Padova selected these children thanks to their international scouts which where present in the last edition of the Juventus National Academy Cup which was held last May in Torino.

Jamie Gauci, Ivan Vesejli born 2000 and Neil Micallef born 1999, experienced three days of intensive training with their respective groups. On Tuesday, Padova organized a friendly match to continue assessing these three Maltese players. The match was played against Montichairello F.C. in Brescia. Padova won the game 7-1.

In this match, Jamie Gauci scored a brace but at the end, the most important achievement was that the three young Maltese players left a good impression with the Padova coaches. According to Molon, there will be more opportunities for these boys to attend more Calcio Padova events in the near future.

In the coming weeks, Juventus Soccer School Malta Technical Director Mr. Charles Borg had been invited to visit again Calcio Padova for the 8th Football Clinic for coaches of the club’s Settore Giovanile.

The Juventus Soccer School Malta thanks once again the respective nurseries for giving the permission to these young boys to live such an unforgettable experience with a foreign Club.

Juventus Soccer School Malta is currently receiving applications from children willing to enrol with the Juventus Soccer School.

During the 2011/12 season, more activities are excepted to be organized by the Juventus Soccer School Malta, amongst which trips to Torino in February and May 2012. For more information, one can contact Mr. Charles Borg Technical Director on email chborg1897@onvol.net or on 99516062.
